The goal of the project was to adopt a new, modular approach to motorcycle design, combining it with the design DNA of the Husqvarna brand.
The main feature of the Alpha Trike is its frame, designed with a pivot system that enables the bike to provide different driving modes: a Sport mode and Urban mode.
In the Sport mode, the aggressive lean-in posture enables the driver to drive “attacking” the road.
The lightweight silhouette changes its mode from Sport to Urban for a laid-back and relaxing ride. The steering in Urban mode is through a joystick.
The concept is capable of extreme leaning, giving the rider the same experience of a sports morotcycles, and at the same time the frame along with the three-wheels layout ensure security and stability of the vehicle.
